How to Make Cookie Butter Tiramisu
Make the whipped cream: Add the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract to a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Mix at medium-low speed until the mixture becomes frothy, then increase the speed until medium peaks form. This will take about 3 minutes.
Add mascarpone and cookie butter: Add the softened mascarpone cheese and cookie butter into the mixture and continue to whip until stiff peaks form. Set aside while you assemble the tiramisu.
Dip the cookies: Pour the cooled brewed espresso into a shallow bowl. Dip each of the cookies into the espresso quickly, then lay them flat at the bottom of an 8x8 baking dish. Repeat this process for a second layer of espresso dipped cookies.
Layer the ingredients: Spread half of the creamy cheese mixture on top of the dipped cookies with an offset spatula, then add another two layers of dipped cookies. Top with the rest of the whipped filling and spread into an even flat layer.
Add cocoa and chill: Dust the top with a generous layer of cocoa powder using a sifter. Chill in the fridge for at least four hours or up to overnight before serving.
To make individual Lotus Biscoff tiramisu servings, use small glasses or ramekins. Dip Biscoff cookies in espresso and layer them on the bottom. Spoon the mascarpone and Biscoff mixture on top, then add more dipped cookies. Repeat the layers to fill the glass. Dust with cocoa powder, chill for at least 4 hours and serve.
Helpful Recipe Tips
- Make sure the mascarpone cheese is at room temperature before using it in the recipe for a smooth and creamier filling.
- Having the espresso or strong coffee at room temperature is crucial to prevent it from soaking the Biscoff cookies when dipping.
- When whipping the heavy cream, start on medium-low speed until it becomes frothy, then increase the speed to medium-high for the best consistency and peaks.
- Be cautious when dipping the Biscoff cookies into the espresso; a quick dip is needed to infuse the coffee flavor without making them overly soggy.
- For best results, refrigerate the completed tiramisu for at least 4 hours or overnight to allow the flavors to meld together and the dessert to set properly.
- When serving, use a sharp knife or a spatula to cut clean slices.
- Add a nutty crunch by incorporating chopped toasted nuts like almonds, hazelnuts, or pecans between the layers.
- Layer thinly sliced strawberries or raspberries between the cookie layers, adding a fresh and tart flavor to balance the sweetness.
- Add a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg to the mascarpone mixture, creating a cozy and spiced flavor.
- Replace the cocoa powder with finely grated dark chocolate for an intense chocolatey flavor with a touch of bitterness.
